"12 now on double D t o P. The Justice Department has launched a civil rights investigation of the Minneapolis Police Department Less than a day after a jury convicted former police officer Derek Sheldon in the death of George Floyd. Now this investigation promises to figure out what Minneapolis police engaged in a pattern or practice that violates the Constitution or federal civil rights lawns. Joining us live politico founding editor John Harris. Hello, John. Good evening. So Attorney General Merrick Garland says justice is going to look at whether police use excessive force, including during protests or engage in any kind of discriminatory conduct. So talk about the significance of this now. Well, I think the significance of it is that an effort by the by the administration, certainly supported by many civil rights groups to say, Look, the trauma of the George Floyd case. Presumably will pass with these convictions, but the larger issue it highlighted. Attention needs to be kept on it, You know, remember that these concerns about excessive police force, particularly against the African Americans preceded the Floyd case by many, many years, yet they never seem to reach critical mass the way they have in the past year. This indicates the Justice Department is really trying to take the momentum from this case for far reaching policy changes. It was relief after some great anxiety once the verdict came down in this case for millions of Americans, so given that so many people are invested. Is there a better chance now that Congress will pass the George Floyd Justin's Justice in Policing Act? You know, there's mixed signs, Republicans and Democrats as they are on. So many issues are far apart, even as many Republicans say they would support some limited Efforts to reform police representative Karen Bass, the Democrat. He's been pushing this, You know, she spoke favorably in recent days about Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina Republicans saying he's operating in good faith. But it's very, very hard asses, you know, to get bipartisan legislation in Washington these days, and particularly in the Senate, where you would need 60 votes, probably to get a measure like this past, so the politics seem different. Clearly. But are they dramatically different enough? So, Tomo? Ah, you need to push this legislation to passage. Alrighty. Politico Founding editor John Harris has always John.

Um They are jurors for this case, so you don't know if they're watching TV or listening the radio or reading a newspaper? You don't know if they're watching once again, the precursor to America burning, which is what we saw over the summer. So again, it wouldn't matter who was on the jury. You know, And I've heard people say, Well, there were four black people and there were two women. What difference does that make? You know, the fact is this guy was gonna be found guilty, no matter what they charged him with. You don't have to be a Rhodes scholar to figure that one out. All right?

Which makes their lack credibility's and protest ng and being a violent modern on. Okay, So Jennifer, let me ask you something. If I may, you saw the video. Did you see anything wrong with that video, Jennifer? Yes, sir. I think you should have been convicted of manslaughter. But you called at that day. He was just called early. Coy. I don't think he intensely tried. So you agree, So okay. Okay. So okay, So a part of me agrees with you. So you agree that absolutely it should have been manslaughter. Okay, So here's my opinion on what I've been saying. So here's my forward, So you're six months as well. So here's my opinion. Jennifer on Jennifer. Here's my opinion on this, okay? And this is maybe where we disagree a little bit. Jennifer Hear me out, Jennifer. Hear me hear me out on this. Okay? We both agree what he did was wrong. We both agree. At minimum. He deserved manslaughter, which is jail time. Here's where we disagree. I don't feel bad. If Derek Sheldon had to spend the rest of his life in jail, And here's why. Okay, Here's why? Because that man is dead. He had his knee over that man's neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. He knew that George Floyd was struggling to breathe. His body went limp. He didn't check his pulse. He didn't perform CPR. And even when the ambulance showed up, it was one of the E. M. T s that had to ask him to take the knee off of George Floyd's neck. To me, that is reckless beyond reckless behavior, And that's why I don't feel bad for him, And I don't feel bad for the fact that the jury No bad for him, but with anyway care if it was you and I, and did anyone care? Think that maybe that was you? I would feel the same way. If you acted the same way shopping did. I would have felt the same way, right? I never I never said that. I felt bad for my said that he received and injustice and it was a It was a very, very bad look for the American justice system because the opinion of those jurors was swayed by outside influences, including including our elected officials and our highest look official. So the president of the United States think it's a bad look. Let me let me respond. Please. You think it's a bad look for the justice system? I think it's a bad look when I white police officer puts his knee over a black man's neck who was on his stomach and handcuffed for nine minutes and 29 seconds and dies. That's where we disagree. Let's go to let's see what we got next year. Let's go to Ah, Glenn Glenn is next time. How do we disagree there? What did I say that That wasn't about? Look? Well, you're you're focusing on the battle. I know you're just you're just bringing up the fact. That I'm bringing up the Justice Department Not bringing up what happened with George Boyd. Then using that to assume that I'm that I'm okay with it again. I'm not okay with that. Clearly, he should have gotten manslaughter. But it wasn't murder two but wasn't murdered three and the only reason That murder two and murdered three work. Decided by the jury is because they were terrified for their lives as they should have is your evidence they should have been considering what's been going on now. I'm gonna ask you now. I'm gonna ask you a question. Based on what you just said. I'm gonna ask you a question. Based on what you just said. Please, let me ask you a question. My and my evidence hanging in my opinion. That's why so because because, Brian, this was not how to form. This was not murder three. You think this? No. You just said that and shove it should do time. Okay? Any police already said that I shouldn't have been on the streets because he was pretty sure. As a union police officer. By people like Amy Klobuchar. Who did I ask Your Majesty's minutes? Okay, So let's go after any club. Okay, so so So let me ask the club car goes after derek show, but we're not having this conversation in a police officer. Okay? I'm not gonna ask you a question. You're not gonna let me ask it, so we'll go back to the phone calls. That's wonderful. Let's go two miles. Miles is next on the Vegas Take what's up miles Miles. How you doing, guys? And Okay, So I do agree that the the verdict was just look. We have a justice system. The jurors were vetted and sat and listened to everything. They came up with the decision. And regardless of what side you believe yes or no. Our justice system says those 12 people make the decision based on the evidence that is presented and they spoken and it is what it is at this point, and we have to move on miles. I agree with you. Did you did you see the trial is I did because I thought the prosecution didn't a very good job in proving their case, and I don't think the defense did. It's all bits and pieces of it didn't see the whole thing. Sure, sure, But but But look, trials go on every day all across this country, and there's jurors that are sad and jurors in cases across the country and come up with just Verdicts. And this is just another fine example of how our justice system works. Whether you certainly or not, it is what it is. I think it's certainly worked here. But I'm not sure if it would have worked if this wasn't A very high profile case, because, as you know, miles, it's very difficult to prosecute Ah police officer. It does happen, but I do think miles that it took a lot to get this guy convicted. And I think a part of that was the fact we'll certainly because of the video miles. See, here's my problem. Miles and I think you'll agree if we didn't have a video. And if those Samaritans those good Samaritans, those citizens were not videoing this Nobody would've been charged with anything miles and I think the problem in a lot What a lot of black people across the country are saying is, if not for video. You know, this stuff has been going on for decades, and we just haven't heard about it because there was no video. The best witness in this trial was the video. And guys. I have another point torto policing that's going across the country and I've heard of your previous segment that people talking about their interactions with law enforcement throughout the decades and how, how negatively they've been affected so much. So my question is all these people that are talking about police reimagined de funding the police departments across the country. Or least to talk about it or the dress justice system. That's Ah, you know, let's work on that. A lot of the interactions come from Traffic stops or reports from other citizens that say right a person is acting suspicious, and law enforcement is tasked with investigating those whether that person they believed they were doing something wrong or not. They may have been called in as a suspicious person and law enforcement's tasked with determining yes or no. Should we should we now do away with all traffic stops, or you? I'll even throw this one out there to you. If an officer makes traffic stop, and a black man says I did nothing wrong. And you only stopped because I'm black. Should the officer walk away that no, No, no. No miles, Miles black? No, no. So Miles in no way, shape or form. Am I saying that I could just tell you personally, I have black friends of mine in this city. I was in.

They're expected to present for a very short time compared to the prosecution, ending perhaps as early as tomorrow. And of course, the Minneapolis area and the country is a whole are also really now from another police comm, killing in the area of another unarmed black man, 20 year old Dante, right after a traffic stop One of the closest observers of the show VIN trial and of race and Justice in America Over all right now is Paul Butler, Georgetown University Law professor former prosecutor Now Washington Post contributing columnist and an MSNBC contributor, as well as author of the book Chokehold Policing Black Men. Some of You Know that Paul is doing a serious of monthly appearances here. For the early part of the Biden presidency to assess his racial justice initiatives. But for today's appearance, we will talk more about these cases. He also wrote a really interesting Washington Post column yesterday called how toxic Masculinity helped Kill George Floyd Paul We always appreciate it. Welcome back to W N. Y. C. Hey, Brian is great to be with you. Can we start on your column? What do you mean in this context by the term toxic masculinity. Everybody focuses on race, and that's appropriate. You cannot overstate the impact of anti black bias and structural systemic discrimination on policing in the United States. But gender matters, too. Often caught much cheese. Mo leads toe what one legal scholar describes us Who's the man contest between people of color and the police? There's language reference in the context of toxic masculinity that could have affected George Floyd's mental health in the way police spoke to Floyd in a prior arrest. Would you tell that story? George Boy was not a macho do He had a series of encounters with police and the jury will get to see video from a 2019 arrests were just like in his fatal encounter with officers, Sheldon And Mr Floyd sees the cops coming about to arrest him. He burst into tears, and he cries for his mother. In the 2019 arrests. One cop tells them Dude act like a man. Them often. Brian, It's the police who want to perform their masculinity by proving veer control and power. Over black bodies. As you know, the defense is using the fact that Floyd called for his mother in that 2019 arrests to minimize his calling for his mother. As a sign of mortal distress as he lay dying under officer show Van's knee like this is what this guy does so he could have easily been seen to not really be dying is a suffix e ation. We're not really not able to breathe. What role do you see that playing in the defense's argument? If that's the best they can do than God hope Derek's shoulder The thing is Brian. Mr Floyd died. He didn't die in 2019, and in fact in that encounter, where he apparently did consume drugs. The police and medics took him to the hospital. They did not arrest him. That's the appropriate way to treat someone who you think might be overdosing on drugs. The defense in the shoving case did present began to present their case yesterday. How do you see them? Mostly trying to create reasonable doubt in the minds of the jury. What The best defense is that Derek Shelvin literally did not kill. George ploy. The defense contends that Mr Floyd died of An overdose of sentinel. And mess. And also his serious pre existing heart conditions. And so we're not in a battle of medical experts as we speak Ryan, the defense Is presenting this chief star witness. Who is a well known medical examiner, who will support Their contention that it's the drugs and pre existing health conditions that killed Mr Floyd. The prosecution had an army of witnesses. Making the opposite point that but for his encounter with Eric Children, George Floyd would not have died on Memorial Day 2020 so really a battle of experts At the end, the jurors will be told by the judge to use their common sense. I think they're common sense will probably suggest. That is not a coincidence that Mr Floyd died after Children's knee was on his neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. And listeners. We can take some phone calls for Paul Butler. Um drugs and law Professor, mostly on the derrick Show Vin trial at 646435 70 to 86 46. 435 70 to 80 Let me read to you from a defense friendly article in the Conservative magazine National Review. From April 1st. So it's almost two weeks ago, and there's been a lot of testimony since, But maybe this is still central to what the jury will hear from the defense and have to account for in their deliberations. Let me get your reaction to this. The article includes these lines. Floyd began calling for his mother and crying out that he could not breathe and was going to die while police were trying to get him to sit in the back of the squad car. Those claims may have been sincere. But if so, they were spurred by what Floyd maintain, where his claustrophobia and anxiety over being taken into custody not by the neck hold in which show Vin subsequently placed him. What's more, the article says it was not the idea of the arresting officers to place Floyd in a prone position on the street. Rather, after propelling his way out of the squad car rear seat that four cops unsuccessfully struggled to place him in. Lloyd insisted that he preferred to lie down on the street. The police restrained him in the position in which he put himself and then it goes on to say, reasonably convinced that Floyd was high on drugs, a conclusion supported by his erratic behavior, the accounts of witnesses and later toxicology tests. The police called for paramedics to take him to a hospital rather than continuing to try to thrust him in the squad car and taken into police custody unquote. So how much of that would you say, has been factually demonstrated? Or refuted and how much will the jury be thinking about arguments like that when they reach the face of deliberations? So a lot of what you just read is alive, so hopefully the jury won't credit those Various allegations. I mean, since when do the police let suspects who were trying to arrest determine where they want to go and whether they're sitting or standing. Police order people who they are arresting, where to go and what to do, and Yes, Mr Louis that actually wanted to be one. His stomach. Handcuffed. Officers, Children me on his neck. He won't not have will seriously complained. We literally have video where we hear a dying man. Near rate his passing, he says, Please, he says all sister None of it works..

I mean, at this point, we're dealing with the trial of Derek Sheldon in the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. And What the public is saying. A lot of the time is that they don't have confidence that the criminal justice system, the court systems are equitable and that they give a fair shake specifically to black men.

Well, we can't carry on with this going on outside, or this is going to affect jurors. Does it do these two dramatic incidents on your patch at the moment? Do they come together? Just explain how they come together? So that actually came up in court this morning, where the defense attorney for Derek Children, the former officer who was charged in killing George Floyd said, Hey, this giant high profile thing just happened. There was unrest on last night. And, um, maybe we should sequester the jurors. Meaning? Maybe that 12 to 14 people who are on the jury should be put into a hotel room and kept away from their families and kept away from, you know, all media sources and things like that, and the judge actually said. You know, these are separate instance. And they need to be treated separately. And I mean, are are they connected? They seem like I mean, if we're thinking outside the court system, they're part of the same sort of theme right? Which is excessive Use of force against civilians and, you know Police officers taking someone's life. So like in that respect they are related. But the judge in this case decided Hey, you know what, Like these are separate instances The jurors need to consider them separately. So he decided not to sequester them. Many thanks Indeed.
